Thanks for writing to us

With antibiotic treatment, symptoms start to subside after 5 to 7 days, but without treatment they continue to get worse for several weeks.

A small number of people who recover from typhoid may have a relapse of their symptoms just a few weeks later. The second bout tends to be less severe than the first, and clears up quickly with further treatment.

Typhoid is treated with antibiotics (e.g., ceftriaxone, levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin), which usually clear up symptoms in less than a week.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
